Do Away with Sticky Notes and Always Have Your Lists with You

Remember when Japanese design firm Kenma designed those slap bracelets you could write on so you’d never forget anything because you had it written right there on your wrist? They’re back with a new addition to their wemo(wearable memo) brand and this time it’s for your mobile devices and computers.

Sure, you can unlock your mobile device and open a note taking app and type that important thought or piece of information out, but you can easily forget it by the time you get there. And once it’s there, if you’re anything like me, you’ll never remember to go back and look at it again. The wemo Wearable Memo II is right there – allowing you to take notes and keep them with you where they’re always in sight. They’re like a reusable sticky note you always have with you instead of the disposable kind that reside on the edges of your computer and around your desk.

They’re made of silicone with a special coating on the outside that allows you to write with oil ballpoint pens. If you make a mistake or you don’t need the note anymore, simple erase it with your finger or an eraser. You can do this as much as you like and the writing will not disappear (even if it gets wet!) until you choose to erase it.

There are two types of their latest creation – the Case type is an actual case for your mobile phone or tablet and the Pad type is a surface, like a sticky note, you can paste on your computer or desk.
